Quotes: Nightmare Fetishist

Love is a simple thing,
Love is a poison ring,
Shiny as a lizard's tongue,
Quiet as a man who's hung,
Love is so great and grand,
Soft as a mummy's hand,
Love is the raven's croak,
Sweet as the poison oak,
Brighter than a coffin nail,
Gay as a widow's wail.
Love makes an old heart stop.
Love is the mating call,
When you've sealed him in the wall,
Love is a simple thing.
— "Love is a Simple Thing," Charles Addams homage verse

"Why is it every conversation you people have has the word corpse in it?"
—Cordelia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("Some Assembly Required")

I'm afraid I don't see things like you do. I mean it: I'm afraid. What if the things I find beautiful drive you mad? What if they hollow you out like clever little squirrels getting nuts for the winter, except the nuts are your eyes, and winter is, I don't know, maybe the Rapture or something? And I'm just smiling while your face gets ripped apart because I think it's beautiful? These things worry me sometimes, when I'm not looking at the night sky. So I spend a lot of time looking at the night sky, and not looking at your face and thinking about squirrels.

I like nightmares waking up in a cold cold sweat
I like nightmares making hair stand up on my neck
My heart is pumping
I'm runnin' for my life
I'm scared to death and yet...
— "I Like Nightmares", from Spooky Music

Tyler, Pact

"Mainly, I have clients, private collectors who are into what I do, and I take requests. They ask for some specific image, and I create it. Images you can't get with just a camera, but that they carry around in their heads. They bring me their sick shit, and I make it visible."
"Perverts?" I asked.
"Yeah. Some of them, sure. But not all. Some of them are just. . . Some of them just need to see with their eyes these images that they've already seen in their mind's eye. Sometimes, it seems like I'm a sort of therapist, or midwife. They might want a photorealistic unicorn, or a woman might want a photo of herself, naked, riding a unicorn, or -"
"A photo of herself fucking that unicorn," I said.
"Pretty much," she nodded.
